Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often should my pet have an exam and blood work?

    For a healthy pet, we recommend at least yearly visits with your doctor to ensure the good health of your pet. For older and sickly animals, more frequent visits and lab work may be required.

  • Why does my pet need a dental procedure?

    Good oral hygiene is encouraged by our doctors and staff due to the reduced risk of disease caused by harmful bacteria that can grow in our pets’ mouths.

  • At what age should I have my pet spayed or neutered?

    Recommended between 4-6 months old or before reaching puberty. Spay done at this age will reduce the risk of mammary cancer by 90%.

  • What are heartworms and how can I prevent my animal from getting them?

    Heartworms are a parasite that is transferred to our pets via mosquito bites. Heartworm treatment is very intensive requiring heavy monitoring by the pet owner and can be costly. The best way to treat heartworms is to actually prevent them from happening. There are many products on the market from pills to chewy treats to injectable medicines that are available through our clinic. Topical heartworm prevention is also available.

  • How safe is my pet’s procedure?

    All procedures, great and small, come with some amount of risk. Our doctors take every step to make sure that your pet is as safe as possible during and after their procedure. This includes pre-op x-rays, blood work and physical examinations. During their procedure, vital signs are monitored and actions taken if these signs veer off from normal rates. After the procedure, the animal is monitored by our staff until deemed ready to head home with their family.

  • How important is nutrition for my pet?

    Just as humans are advised to get all their vitamins and daily servings in, veterinarians suggest the same for animals. Having a balanced diet keeps your pet trim, active and healthy. If your pet suffers from allergies there are also hypoallergenic foods available at our clinic that can keep skin issues at bay.

  • How long should I wait to bring my pet in if I notice a change in behavior?

    If you notice your pet acting strangely, including loss of appetite or energy, you should bring your pet in as soon as possible for an examination by our doctors. Pets have an instinct to hide pain and illness because it can signal they are easy prey to predators. By the time we as owners notice the change in behavior the animal may have been suffering for several days.

  • What financing options do you offer or is payment expected at time of service?

    Country Place Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer above standard services and care for their clients. In order to continue a high quality of service, payment is expected in full at time of examination or procedure. We accept cash, check and credit card payments. If financing is something that needs to be used, we are partnered with Care Credit. You can find more information at
